“Then the Lord said, "I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.”
Exodus 3:7-8 ESV
This passage is specifically speaking about the Israelites and delivering them from Egypt, but to me it also seems to be speaking prophetically about all of humanity. God has seen our suffering (both just and unjust), and He has come down to deliver us. God Himself came down to earth in order to deliver His suffering people from our sin and restore us to right relationship with Him and with each other.
Unfortunately, that deliverance is not fully complete in this earthly lifetime, and doesn't mean that everything will go well for us as believers. This is evident in John's life with his imprisonment for courageously speaking the truth, and ultimately his death. But his physical death ushered him into the presence of God, and the eternal and perfect fulfillment of our deliverance by the Bread of Life.
